Counseling is a journey. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, the opportunity to copilot as we work through the barriers and forge forward in that journey is my motivation. Although it can feel overwhelming and counterproductive to add yet another thing onto our to do list; being intentional with our time and using it to work on oneself and access resources can expedite healing. Thus, it makes sense that when our tank is low and we are faced with endless battles, we would benefit from something extra introduced into our lives. By creating a therapeutic relationship and providing a space where we are able to take the time to explore, confront and address your identified needs and goals we may be able to form a catalyst to a healthier lifestyle. I work to provide opportunities for my clients to obtain insight and practice skills to thrive through evidence-based approaches.

After just a couple of sessions with Kelly I feel right at home with her as my Therapist. She is kind, understanding, intelligent and has given me great goals to improve my mental health confidence. She is great at providing a different perspective and new viewpoints to work from in my own mind
